The contentious interview between Newt Gingrich and Megyn Kelly shows me two things about the billionaire who everybody loves to hate: If Trump wins, he wins and if Trump loses, he wins.
Here’s why: Fox bills itself as “fair and balanced.” The folks on the Dem side view Fox as ultra-conservative; the mullet wrapper of news sources. Conservatives look at Fox and they’re sick and tired of folks like Megyn Kelly, Shepard Smith, Geraldo Rivera, and Juan Williams (to name a few). Ironically, there are too many “foxes” in the Fox henhouse.
Trump is no conservative; but, he’s embraced a conservative agenda on the holy grail issues to those who are conservative: pro-life; strong 2nd Amendment; build up a strong defensive military; create robust border security; tighten immigration policy for security reasons, etc. When a Fox interview is akin to a debate between Mark Levin and Joy Behar, and the person representing Fox is akin to Behar, BAM a new day has dawned. The fact that Trump, a non-conservative, can embrace a conservative agenda and stick to it (when other conservatives can’t even stick to a party endorsement) is telling. The fact that folks who were sent to D.C. to invoke change after midterm elections became deal-makers who pushed through Obama’s agenda shows this: folks can get elected on a conservative platform; but they can’t deliver. Leadership is weak and weak leaders need to be culled from the herd. Being elected to do one thing and then doing another is analogous, in Trump’s world to being hired for a project and coming in behind schedule and over budget. You promise one thing to get a check and then waste somebody else’s check once hired. Ain’t happening. So, here’s the perfect storm…
